IsraeliRD created the topic: 2014 Predictions :: Right or Wrong?
After two years of waiting, we can now check the previous year's predictions. Discuss HERE only 2014's predictions, be it your own or others and whether they were right or wrong.

Your previous predictions can be found here.

The old forum for the capsules is here.

I actually did mine a while ago, haha. Got impatient and found them on an old Google Doc.

Since the formatting doesn't want to transfer, you can view my predictions and their corrections here:

I will rarely play Marble Blast, if at all.


For the most part, pretty accurate.

MBFubar will be released this summer for the sake of finally releasing it.


And by "this summer" I of course meant 2016.

Aayrl wrote:
We will maintain this 'new site' for the continuation of Marble Blast's career.


So far, so good.

Aayrl wrote:
I will find a third job and limit my online time.


Nope, just found a single job which pays more than the two jobs combined. It's about the same time commitment though.

Aayrl wrote:
I will become a part of something ... ground breaking? (Check back in one year for details..)


I own several patents now, I've been published in medical journals, I'm immortalized in my university, I have a steady job and have already made ripples in the medical industry. I guess that counts.

Aayrl wrote:
Earn a handful of web design certifications and perhaps some preliminary networking ones, too.


Yep. I can document circles around you and I have a paper to prove it.


This was fun. I'll make sure I remind IsraeliRD to unbury the Time Capsule next year instead of these two year gaps.

IsraeliRD replied the topic: 2014 Predictions :: Right or Wrong?
I never posted my 2013 results... so uh, wrong topic but whatever:

Forums: 2,661 members, 161,120 posts, 8,837 topics, 25-45 members a day (today 51!)
Myself: 2,444 PMs, 12,491 posts
YouTube: Videos: 797, Video Views: 3,428,416, Subscribers: 875
MBG Movie: 88,921/334/202/19

Forums: No one cares @ any stats but we do have ~60 members a day (beforehand: 25-45)
Myself: Don't care
YouTube: I have 951 videos, maybe 2-3 unlisted. 4,939,198 video views and 1,665 subscribers.
MBG Movie: I didn't realise it was blocked throughout the world. Oops.

- Something huge occurs this year that will make the above stats not count unless I... add things up.

New site WOO

- My activity might see an abrupt halt for a few months, but I’m not sure on this. Likewise this affects any project I’m currently involved in. The current staff team might not change or will have new people. 1-2 members may quit.

- All wrong

- PlatinumQuest might be released in 2013, but will be confirmed for 2014 due to reaching a very advanced stage by the end of 2013. PlatinumQuest will release an additional trailer or two as well as a demo build, all of which will hype the community further.

NOPENOPENOPENOPE

- Marble Blast Fubar will be released (after I bug Aayrl daily), Marble Blast Elite could possibly die or have an incomplete release unless they pull it together instead of being lazy, in which case they might release towards the end of the year. HappyRoll will continue being built or have some sort of release. Other mods will die or have an incomplete release.

- I stopped bugging after a month. Fubar didn't release. Elite died. HR had a demo. Mods died and had incomplete releases in 2015.

- Marble Blast Platinum will release before or on July of this year. New build version is a huge jump from 1.20 and it includes a lot of rewritten or new content that will make people super happy and satisfied until PlatinumQuest comes out.

- 1.50 didn't happen until 2014, so wrong.

- Talking about something huge, it’s going to be a massive earthquake to this community and everyone will be happy with it.

- I think 1.50 was announced?

- Level of the Year 2013 will not happen

THANK. GOD. levels are shit.

- CLA gets a proper update release by mid-2013, as well as an update CGA (Gfx Archive).

NOPE. PF sucks.

- More people either quit or come back to us

Happened, don't ask me who.

- MBP WRR 2 releases this year to huge acclaim, but unknown if it’ll be done for SDA. MBG WRR #4 will continue to be in progress (although no one really works on it) and not release this year.

Yes to both.

- At least two members will be banned.

- Uh, can't remember. I'll write "yes".

- Over 150 new levels will be released in 2013.

- Nope

- I will make Lonestar create a time capsule starting in December instead of late December like always

NOPE and he quit

- Hangman Game passes 1000 puzzles.

IT DIED don't remember maybe

- I might release a new custom level to the community.

NOPE only in 2014

- Seizure will lose the game while working on PQ

He didn't work on PQ but he lost the game

YouTube:
- Videos: 825 or more, Video Views: 3.75m +, Subscribers: 1k+

Sure why not

- MBG Movie will reach over 110,000 video views, get over 355 comments and will be liked more than 250 times while disliked at least 27 times.

NOPE LOL IT GOT ULTRACOCKBLOCKED

- YouTube changes their design yet again to annoy me

Yup


Life related:

- I will hold two temporary jobs and miss out on a full-time one
- ...which will mean something big happens this year.

- Only one temp job, and a second happened in 2014. No full-times.

- I will read 3 new books and see at least 3 new movies (1 movie was done today [Disaster Movie])

NOPE probably

- I will get a new desktop computer

YES got it in July 2013

- I will have consider a laptop computer, but this will fall through.

Happened, but hey I got one at my temp job (well it was theirs) so you know... maybe.

- I might get a new mobile phone if my current one dies

It didn't die and I got one in 2014

- I will lose weight and gain muscles. Sexy baby.

Gained muscle and weight. Still sexy baby.


Others:

- I stop using FireFox 3.6 and move to 16+ permanently. Currently 3.6 is still my main one.

Maybe.

- My desktop gets a cleanup of icons as I uninstall a number of games and delete or move out old stuff.

Maybe. It did since.

- I’m not sure if I’ll go to SDA’s 2014 AGDQ marathon, but outlook is positive in September.

NOPE

- I still won’t play C&C4

Correct!

- I will not get to play RA3: Uprising’s Commander’s Challlenge or play very little, getting at least 30%.

NOPE

- Theme Park Inc speedrun will complete with audio commentary and be submitted to SDA. Let’s go with ACCEPTED in verification and posted on front page this year as well.

RESTARTED. FUCK. ME.

- As much as I’d love to speedrun C&C Generals, this won’t happen this year as well.

YUP

- I will not finish TASing Hocus Pocus episodes ¾ and 100% Ep. 1. In fact, they will continue to be suspended indefinitely.

100%

- Andrew will not block me for a second year in a row in MSN. However as MSN dies in March, he will not block me in Skype/Steam.

CORRECT and kept going for 2014/2015. Three years!

- I will not play Hearts in 2013.

I think I did...

- I will find 5 new good songs

YUP

- SDA will evolve a lot more and I will continue with my current duties with a job well done. I might be requested to take on more.

Got asked for more in 2013, and SDA de-evolved.

- In fact, my SDA involvement will become larger this year and take over Marble Blast (especially if something big happens this year like I suspect it will).

NOPE

- I will continue using hotmail/gmail as mail providers, but seriously consider dropping hotmail for good, but won’t do so anyway.

CORRECT

- I will get some new dragon thingy in my room.

Maybe?

- I will step in dog shit :P

Correct :P

- I will lose the game (too late)

FUCK. yes.

- I will not get a girlfriend

Sadly right

- ... I will not like (living in) Israel but accept my fate and do the most with it.

Happened in 2014 so wrong here. I didn't like it in 2014 anyway and accepting my fate. Maybe.

- ... and life will be... good?

2013 was good.

- Regardless of what happens this year (unless the big thing happens, and I have to join that place, where this prediction will no longer be true)... TOAST will remain my #1 breakfast with occurrence of at least 95% of the year.

TOAST KEPT BEING TRUE!!!

Also in 2014 the unposted prediction was to make funny jokes in every post I edit. I think I got it.
